Books&Roof: Rooftop opening and Bookcrossing Session
Next Friday, April 21st, UPF Barcelona School of Management will inaugurate the new rooftop terrace of 200 square meters in the Balmes building. The opening event will be the starting point of a cultural event which, being so close to Sant Jordi, will be based on a Bookcrossing activity with book exchanges, music, and service bar. With the hashtag #books&roof, the university invites professors, working staff, and students to participate in this initiative that promotes cultural engagement, intellectual bonding, and collaborative consuming.
In order to participate, each guest should bring a book of his choice with a short text explaining why he recommends it. Then, he will be able to exchange it for one from another guest.
With this initiative, UPF Barcelona School of Management intends to encourage reading and literature through the practice of book exchange, and at the same time, give books a second life. This is why, to start the event, the school will contribute with around a hundred books donated by our faculty and professors, and in great part, from the director of the Master in Editing, Javier Aparicio.
The event will take place from 14:00 to 18:00 at the 6th floor and will have live music with DJ Lluís Cardenal and bar service from Hepburn Catering from 15h.
